That’s right, the new Sigma8 will be launched in February. Bruce Goldsmith joined the Advance design team led by Thomas Ripplinger to create the latest in a long line of successful intermediate gliders. While the outgoing Sigma7 was very much focused on efficiency for effortless cross-country performance, the new wing will be more of an all-rounder. Advance have gone with the three-line layout which is in vogue at the moment and has proven so successful on the Omega8. Performance is claimed at an incredible 10:1 glide and a top speed of 55kph. As usual with Advance, the glider will actually reach these claims.
To broaden the appeal of the new glider, Bruce has brought his renowned skills as a designer to the table and added his trademark dynamic handling to the package. The result should be performance in excess of that achieved in the Omega7 combined with fun, direct handling that will appeal to those usually more interested in acro than covering distance.
